    Re: What did you pass up today? Summer '13

    Eh, distilleries sell all kinds of good stuff they don't bottle themselves. That much is evident as there's been some truly great NDP stuff out there. Not one that's turned my head in a little while though.

    Re: What did you pass up today? Summer '13

    money talks, i imagine.

    case in point.....i have been curious to try some Ezra 7/101. i KNOW that this is sourced from HH, but still wanted to try it just to see what it was like. bought some today and tried it. pretty much tastes like any HH BIB ive tried, but minutely different......probbly not enough to pick up in a blind tasting.

    so my point is this: HH BIB 6 year here is an $11 bottle. Ezra 7/101 is an $18 bottle. pretty much the same stuff, as theyre both HH products, just one is under a different name (the ezra). if Luxco (ezra's owner), knowing they can get away with a $7 markup per bottle, is willing to pay HH more for the bourbon than HH knows it will get out of selling it themselves under their own label..........what do you thing HH is going to do? i would sell it to Luxco in a heartbeat too! HH has so many labels, what do they care? especially when they can make more selling it to Luxco than to deal with the bottling/distribution themselves....

    Thankfully, we have the resources of this site so we can learn the differences in such things.

    I passed up a Rittenhouse 21 for $150. Not sure if that was a good or bad price but regardless it was too steep a hill for my wallet to climb. I did buy the Thomas Handy I found in another store at a far more reasonable $70.

    To qualify I haven't had any if the three, but the Ritt 21 seems to be regarded as the best of the three. That is the price I have always seen it at and seems fair but understand as I have never bought it for myself because of the price.

    quite a fair price. I'd certainly be willing to pay a bit more for it.

    Now need to go bang head against wall to fit urge of wanting said gem.

    $50 BMH Small Batch... I can't justify that money on NS NDP when EC12 is so much more affordable.
    Bourbon only requires a glass.

    Passed on some Baby Saz. Only because I spent a little money on some 2013 FR LE SB. Will pick it up next time.
